  1. 60 MPH and the dash beeps!

    Problems & Issues
    I have a used 2008 with about 137,500 miles. Body and interior are in very good condition and I have a service history for the vehicle that shows it was well maintained before I purchased it. I've been driving it for about 3 months. On three occasions, when I've reached a highway speed of...
  2. Electrical Buzzing sound from dash - No other issues yet??

    Problems & Issues
    Hey, I've recorded a video documenting the sound that is happening. It started off as a solid buzzing sound only when i first started the car, but now its evolved into a strange on/off sequence buzz and I have no idea where its coming from, the sound persists for a few minutes after the key has...
  3. Aux Port to USB?

    Mobile Electronics
    I'm considering replacing the original head unit with something that can support ApplePlay —*perhaps the Boss BVCP9675. Since ApplePlay requires a USB connection and the AUX jack will be rendered redundant, my preference would be to replace the existing AUX socket with a flush USB port and run...
  4. Dashboard Lights don't work when it's cold

After I drive for a long time, the dashboard lights will sometimes come back on. I...

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods

  6. Dash lights out (various causes)

    Problems & Issues
    :confused: My 2005 has just 3,300 miles on it and the dashboard lights went out today. I checked some of the fuses but they seem to be okay. I don't have the patience to check them all and the mosquitos are swarming outside. Does anybody know exactly which fuse (#, engne compartment fuse...
  7. Instrument / gauge cluster: bulb replacement / color change / LED conversion

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I was wondering if there's an easy way to change the color of the light bulbs that illuminate the instrument cluster. After removing the cluster, I see a ton of small bulbs that are in removable "Toshiba V2" housings (or something like that). Is there a simple way to make these say, blue? Or...
